Harvey and Irma, Married 75 Years, Marvel at the Storms Bearing Their Names

Over the past seven decades of marriage, Harvey and Irma Schluter have experienced multiple major events together, according to the New York Times.

Roosevelt was president of the United States, the cost of a new auto was $920 and former heavyweight boxer Muhammad Ali was about 2 months old", the Spokesman-Review reported back in March, when celebrating the couple's milestone anniversary. The organization has alternated between male and female names since 1979, and they routinely reuse names for minor storms-but if a storm is historically costly and deadly, the name will be retired.

"And I opened the door and I saw a soldier and I shut the door because I didn't know who it was", says Irma.
